The Tandem Hook Olive Streamer is so much fun to fish with. There are anglers that can't get enough of streamer fishing. It can be one of the most exciting methods of fly fishing, as it is very involved and usually produces violent strikes when a fish decides to take the fly.
It's time for you to switch to your streamer when you don't see any rises, or the speed of the streams and rivers are too slow. There are a few key tips to streamer fishing. Getting your fly down as fast as possible is key. Using a sink tip fly line or a heavy split shot will do the trick. Keep your rod tip down, it will help with getting your flies down deeper in the water column. Also, let the hook sink for 2 to 3 seconds.
Throw one mend as the fly is making its way downstream to set your fly and line just right. Then let the current pull the streamer downstream in a natural drift and bring out that fish of a lifetime. When it comes to stripping, try multiple different ways throughout the day. A great way to start is with fast 6-inch strips. You can't strip line as fast as a fish can swim. There is no such thing as too fast.
